During the past two Wednesdays, in between my day and evening classes, I've been working on my friend's hamsa (see April 17 post, Hamsa for My Friend). Even though I really want to do a stitched or inlaid polymer clay version of this for her, I decided to complete it in colored pencil first so I could give it to her as soon as possible.

I spoke with her on Tuesday and her chemo seems to be going well. Hope my hamsa brings her my three wishes...protection, strength and love. I know that creating it for her, with my full focus on her during the process, has helped me.
